Hong Kong-based charity group Animals Asia has recently released a video documenting animal rights advocates efforts to protest outside of a circus being held in Beijing.
The footage comes from a demonstration that Freedom for Animal Actors (FAA), a grassroots animal welfare organization, organized outside of the Beijing Workers Stadium in May of this year.
Protesters dressed up in their furriest animal costumes in attempt to dissuade parents from taking their children to see the performance.
“I am a monkey: I am chained, starved and beaten to learn to perform unnatural tricks. If you love me, don’t come to see my performance,” says one of the protesters in a monkey mask and chains.
Watch the video below and see how many people they managed to convince:
